My Favourite Drugstore Dupes

Sometimes the products we love are simply not in our budget. Below I list my favourite drugstore dupes for high-end products. They work just as well but are only a fraction of the cost!

Setting Spray

 MAC’S Fix+ Spray has always been a favourite of mine. Recently, I tried ELF’s Makeup Mist & Set spray and loved it!!! The best part….it only costs $3 versus $21 for the MAC version.

 Face Soap

 Equate’s Mild Liquid Facial Soap is a very good & comparable dupe to Clinique’s Facial Soap Mild but for a fraction of the cost: ($7.96 vs. $20.00)


 The beauty community raves about NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($29). While I love this product, I do not love the price tag. I decided to try out Maybelline Fit Me Concealer ($7) and found it to be amazing. This is my go to concealer from now on.



 NARS Blush/Bronzer duo in Orgasm & Laguna has long been a favourite of mine. Recently my friend told me to try the ELF dupe in the colour St. Tropez. While the colours aren’t exactly the same, they are definitely close. What isn’t close is the pricetag.. ($3 for ELF vs. $41 for NARS)


 I love champagne coloured eyeshadows. My longtime favourite has been Stila eyeshadow in the colour ‘Kitten’ ($18). However, when I’m on a tight budget I turn to L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in the colour ‘Iced Latte’ ($8). The colour is almost identical and it has a great high-pigmented, long-lasting formula.
